Mental Health America of Los Angeles Dedicate Clothing Department to Late Suicide Silence Singer

It’s been more than three years since Suicide Silence lost their singer Mitch Lucker in a motorcycle accident. Since that day, the band has done a lot to keep the vocalist’s memory alive from holding a charity show to help raise funds for the late singer’s daughter to giving back to a charity to help combat suicide in America. Last December, the band raised nearly $17,000 at a benefit show for Mental Health America of Los Angeles.

Now, in exchange for the band’s generosity, the nonprofit organization has named their donated clothing department “The Mitch Lucker Clothing Closet.” “We are honored to have been the beneficiary of a charity concert held by the band Suicide Silence,” begins the statement from the nonprofit organization on Facebook. “Their donation is helping us to build our homeless healthcare center where people living on the streets with mental illness can come and get their needs met. This center will help people get connected to the services that they need. The band has chosen to name our clothing closet in honor of their departed lead singer, Mitch Lucker, who helped begin the legacy of giving that led them to us. We could not be more grateful. Thank you to Suicide Silence and to your compassionate fans!”

Suicide Silence took to Facebook to comment about the honor. “As a result of December’s benefit show, we’re happy to announce that Mental Health America of Los Angeles will be officially naming their donated clothing department ‘The Mitch Lucker Clothing Closet.’ We’d like to thank MHALA & all of our fans for helping to make this great honor possible. Let’s all continue to live positively & make 2016 an incredible year.”

Suicide Silence released their fourth studio album, You Can’t Stop Me, which featured the official debut of their new vocalist, Eddie Hermida, in 2014. In the fall of 2015, they released their Sacred Words EP and hit the road alongside Korn for their 20th anniversary tour.

Korn Announce 20th Anniversary Tour

Korn has been celebrating their debut album’s 20th anniversary for a year now, but that’s not stopping them from continuing on. After the first leg of the tour was met with a lot of critical acclaim, the group have decided to bring it down a notch and perform in smaller, more intimate venues.

Today, they revealed that they will be closing out the 2015 touring season with a month’s long trek by performing at intimate venues during the month of October. The setting change isn’t the only thing the “nu metal” band are changing up. During this run, the group will perform their Ross Robinson-produced self-titled album, which was released in May of 1994, in full as well as throwing in some other tracks on the set list for good measure. According to a press statement, Korn will allow fans to request what songs they play during their encore.

For those looking forward to the show, there will be a limited amount of tickets and early entry packages available for purchase on Korn’s website beginning tomorrow, July 22 at 10 a.m. PT. Regular tickets will go on sale beginning this Friday, July 24, at 10 a.m. local time.

The tour is scheduled to begin on Oct. 1 at Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom and then wrap up on Oct. 30 at the Fox Theater in Oakland, CA. Suicide Silence and Islander will act as supporting acts for the month-long trip.

Suicide Silence Release Mitch Lucker Documentary


When Suicide Silence’s frontman, Mitch Lucker, passed away last year, their fans were first mourning his death and then began to wonder what would become of the California-based band.

After taking what was almost a full year off to figure out how to continue, they eventually returned with the news that they would be releasing new music and would continue as a band with a new vocalist, Hernan “Eddie” Hermida of All Shall Perish.

Today, the band released a 30-minute documentary about their late frontman which includes early footage of the band during their career as well as interviews with Lucker’s parents and pictures of when he was younger. The full documentary can be seen below.

As for Suicide Silence, the band have confirmed that they would be releasing the footage of Mitch Lucker’s memorial show titled, Ending is the Beginning: The Mitch Lucker Memorial Show, on CD/DVD/Blu-ray on February 18, 2014. As for new music, they have also confirmed that their fourth studio album is scheduled to be released sometime during the Summer of 2014.

Suicide Silence Confirm New Vocalist


After some speculation about Suicide silence finally choosing a new vocalist for the group surfaced earlier this week, it looks like what most, if not all, music media outlets had been reporting was in fact true; the band have finally decided.

Who would now be fronting the group was also something that has been confirmed and it looks like most rumors, it was true; Eddie Hermida of All Shall Perish will be taking over the spot that the late Mitch Lucker left open after he passed away last year.

The band have released the following statement about their decision:

“Suicide Silence is pleased to announce the addition of Eddie Hermida to the family. Many of you may be familiar with Eddie through his work with All Shall Perish. For those of you unfamiliar, our relationship with Eddie goes way back to the Spreading Disease Tour, our first U.S. headlining run, in 2006. Mitch & Eddie remained long-time friends and we felt that if the band were to continue it should be with someone Mitch knew personally and respected as both a friend and an artist. We’ve chosen Eddie as our new frontman in association with this long-standing relationship & countless other attributes from his quality of character to his dynamic vocal abilities that make him the absolute best fit for this band. 

We hope you all will embrace this decision with open arms understanding that this is what Mitch would have wanted. He would want his brothers to stick together & carry forward what he helped create. Every time we step on stage it will be in his honor & for his legacy. Suicide Silence will continue.”

Earlier today, news started to surface in many music media sites saying that the band have chosen a new vocalist to take over the place of their late frontman Mitch Lucker.

While the new is just that, rumors, at the moment, many sites are also reporting that the vocalist taking over the role will be Eddie Hermida of All Shall Perish.
